Robertson, 37, is a 14-year MLB veteran with a 2.89 ERA. This season, he has a 2.23 ERA for the Cubs in 36 appearances.
The Phillies have a bullpen ERA of 3.85, which ranks in the middle of the league. Robertson will help them down the stretch, as they currently have a 55-47 record and are looking to contend.
Chicago has started a rebuilding process and has traded away some players already before the deadline. They get Brown, who is in High-A ball right now with a 3.27 ERA in his career across all levels of the minor leagues.
